Academic success coaching
Meet one-on-one with a senior UBC Sauder student to discuss any aspect of your academic life and get tips on how to succeed in your coursework, classes, and time at UBC.
Student coaches who know what it is like to learn and study at UBC Sauder are available to:
- work with you to build an individual study plan
- improve your note taking and time management skills
- discuss exam writing strategies
- give you the inside scoop on getting involved
- help you prioritize competing commitments
- be a sounding board for your academic planning
If you want to improve your academic performance or learn more about getting involved in opportunities outside the classroom, a coaching appointment is a good place to start. The Academic Success Coaching (ASC) program runs weekly throughout the winter term in the Canaccord Learning Commons (CLC) room 205.
Students are encouraged to sign up for academic success coaching on COOL under the appointments tab. Drop-in appointments are also offered subject to availability.
Coaching will resume in the fall.
Tips and tricks from the coaches
Study the hard stuff first. As you get closer to the test, you'll know what you need to review more closely.
Try explaining tricky concepts out loud to a friend or classmate. This will help the information stick better than just reading or writing it down.
Take a break or go for a walk! Getting rest, staying active, and taking time to eat a balanced meal will all help you focus and improve information retention.
Meet the coaches
Our coaches have a range of interests and experience, but are all eager to help their fellow UBC Sauder students since they've been there too. You can contact the coaches at firstname.lastname@example.org
